PTO Welcome for Incoming Kindergarteners! Listservs, Volunteer Positions, & Spirit wear!

Hello incoming Kindergarten families!

Welcome to Franklin! We are so excited for you to be a part of our school community!

Last week, you already have heard from our two Kindergarten Welcoming Committee Co-Chairs, Sarah Harris & Kate Civetti. They will be in touch soon with kindergarten buddy groups for this summer, and just one more reminder that the original playground date in September was changed because it conflicted with Rosh Hashanah.

The new kindergarten playground nights with popsicles are:

  • July 20th at 6pm (rain date July 21st)

  • August 10th at 6pm (rain date August 11th)

  • August 25th at 6pm (rain date August 26th) <<-- DATE CHANGED!!

It was wonderful seeing many of you at the Kindergarten Visiting Day a few weeks ago, and on the informational zoom. The Franklin PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is here to help build community at our school, support relationships between families and educators, and raise funds to be used to enhance our children's school experiences. The PTO pays for all of the extras at Franklin: Creative Arts & Sciences Programs, library books, teacher mini grants, extra supplies in the classroom, Multicultural Night, and so much more! We also plan fun community events throughout the year such as our Halloween Bash, art contests, flamingo flocking fundraiser, annual auction & trivia night, mystery dinner, playground playdates, and picnics!
